( 36°C, muggy, weary, flabby. Changed spot twice on thunderstorm ahead (that was only one short normal rain). Several breaks.)
3c basics - 5 min   138, 90 doubles.   ~10, 20, 10, 10 triples.
3c tricks - 7 min   .. took the bad spins into this stint. 441 - upto three rounds to drops.   34530 - Two sides to full collect with halves.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 13 min.
[ changed spot on sky clearing up ]
more 3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 20 min.

7b casc - 45 min.   Not over 41 throws.
[ break, snack + watered clothes ]
7b casc - 5 min.   .. too muggy, worn .. went down to ..
5b div - 20 min.   Endure. Reverse cascade.
7b casc - 37 min.   One 63 throws run in a very short good phase. Rest under 40 th again.   [ daily7b II: 63 ]
Again, felt too muggy & worn for 7b, so did 5b "fastest" and thought, I might just aswell try that with 7b (needing little effort only) ..
7b fastest - 10 min.   .. but it was too droppy, so spent the rest with:
5b fastest - 20 min.   Got a few longer runs around 50 and 60 throws.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 9 balls flashing, 3 heavy balls, #invention, 3 clubs basics, 3 clubs tricks, #otu, 5 heavy balls, 5 balls, 263 minutes

3c basics - 5 min   212 c cl on doubles.   22, 36 throws to drop on triples.
3c tricks - 15 min  
          441 - three rounds to drop on the third 1.
          531 - bad, first time ever tried #otu . High 5, then galopping 31 could be an approach.
          34530 - Three times the sequence with cascade in between to a clean collect. This pattern is more and more fun the better I get it .. having two clubs in the air (the 4 and the 5) that will land right and handles to the point, and throwing out another one (the 3) feels great.
3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 28 min.   [ yesterday: ] You can catch a ball between handback and the inside upper part of the other forearm (near the el); then roll it up like that from there using the forearm as a ramp. #inventions
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 10 min.   120 throws 6-high.   215 th on rather lower 5-height.
9b flashing - 40 min.   Only one 7 gathers launch. A few more or less reasonable upto 3 rethrows. Stopped when I got multiple releases when overspeeding and wanting too much (instead trying well-tempered), so to say.
5b 52567 - 57 min.   A 10th, a 9th side to drop(s). Another long run 11(?) or 13(?) sides to collapse. Rest rather upto 7 sides.
7b casc - ~95 min.   Not over 39 c cl today.   [ daily7b II: 39 ]
In between took a plunge in the river.
5b fastest - 13 min.   Upto 30+.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 7 balls splits, 208 minutes

5b casc varied - 13 min.   high.   wristy\\unwristy.   Single reachovers ( a column, that then later clawed reaching over, and claw-thrown-as-caught as column back to pattern ((and hurry back to that hand's normal side for the next normal catch)) ) - got one back to cascade.   fastest.
5b 52567 - 40 min.   An early 10 sides clean. Several 8th sides. Two 9th sides to collapse.
7b casc - 137 min.   After again being haunted by a doubting demon, if I'd ever again improve at all (!?), it became a normal stint at last with acceptable yield and some good smooth runs. Did - on its own, each - "pull the pattern near my body, soas as to seem it being right above me", then "make sure, every single throw is on minimum height", then - as good patterns allowed for it - "simply aim up left-right"-left-a.s.o., very simply cascady. 49, 45, 51, 55, 45, 45, 43, 43, 45 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]
7b splits - 3 min.   Bad, droppy, inaccurate - preferred to do sth else ..
5b fastest - 15 min.   Upto around 40 throws. One long run twisted my torso about 90° and I had to bend knees, slightly pivot and lift heels, but the run went on.

A short crispy thunderstorm's thunders were so sudden and bursting loud, that it seemed, this whole region was meant to now be erased.

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, #PR, #outstandingRuns, 5 balls, 258 minutes

5b endure - 10 min.   From cold, did until a 500+ throws run - took ten minutes. Got ~525 th.
5b casc varied - 20 min.   9-high a few.   Then, same idea as above, getting long ednured runs and the corresponding feel and technique and mindset, did wristy 7-high wanting like 200 throws (about double of what I currently want with 7b); dunno how long it took, but after several attempts got 197 throws.   A bit "fastest" too.
5b 52567 - 68 min.   Upto two 9th sides, one of which full caught, three 10th sides, one of which full caught. Then 14 sides with one last drop = new #PR 55 catches. #outstandingRuns - The run was forced, slaving to rhythm and heights as good as I could without really controlling anything. Also a slight drift left ahead took me walking around and away from my spot in a big half circle not seeing where I was stepping on those bold cobbles needing to do every step ``individually´´ so to say. Didn't learn anything from that run, yet hopefully my subconscious will on occasion remember how to keep this pattern up even longer. Couldn't confirm, so no ``breakthrough´´, but good stint with good yield and some smooth shorter runs, and glad this is moving on.
Had chosen a spot (under the bridge) on the other riverside, where I happened to originally start to work on just this pattern about a year ago.
7b casc - 150 min.   43, 45, 45, 48, 65, [short snackbreak and lie down two minutes], 51, 49 throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 65 ]
5b fastest - 10 min.   No long runs.
